My friend at school (well, I say friend...) started swearing at me. What she didn't realize was that a teacher was standing right behind her. I don't feel sorry for her getting in trouble. She called me a f***ing b**** etc.

Need to vent, feel free to ignore.
 
I'm not one for first-world-technology problems. O_e But this is serious.

My laptop's keyboard is malfunctioning. ;_; Several of they keys don't work. The light on the Caps Lock button isn't working right. And if I turn on Caps Lock on the broken keyboard OR my wireless one (which I'm using now), it types "I88888888888" and doesn't stop until I press it again. e___e

I can't type very fast on my wireless because I'm not used to it. The Backspace key is SUPER TINY. The Enter key is unreasonably big. AND I've never used the Shift key to capitalize. I always just tap the Caps Lock. x_x

Normally, I wouldn't care. But I NEED to write my book. It's one of my main lifelines. And I'm already under enough stress already. I don't need to worry about getting my keyboard fixed. x__x

*le end rant*

Um. Right. Um. *awkward glance* Take it to a computer repair shop to get it fixed?

cursing
 
e_e No, cursing won't cause an earthquake. It won't give you a horrible illness. But you know what? It's disruptive. It's disrespectful. It's severely immature. It promotes negative thinking. Using that kind of language in a public place/website is INCREDIBLY inconsiderate.

Do I ever curse? Yes, I do. It slips out when I get overemotional. I'm not perfect. But I AM trying to stop the habit. Because, in my opinion *points* cursing isn't acceptable behavior for anyone.

Do I care that you think I'm immature? You can't stop everyone.

Did you see the poem on the Wikipedia page?

DragonRider 06-20-2012 05:54 PM

I swear a lot, mainly because I am surrounded by many people who swear, so I grow into the habit. I am trying to stop. I have a new method. If I think I might swear, I tell myself to imagine what the Doctor would say. And I don't like to disappoint the Doctor.

I'm not calling you immature. Nor am I trying to stop you. I'm just stating my opinion on the matter.

It would mean a lot to me (and a lot of other people on here) if people wouldn't use that kind of language.

I wanted to read your post, but it was too damn long.

ME, she wasn't calling people who swear immature. She's says that they sound immature and/or are being immature when they curse. Please, don't get so defensive when people are stating their opinion, because it's not always going to be directed towards you. I agree that she can't stop everyone, but that doesn't mean she can't try, and that certainly doesn't mean you need to be rude about it, which was how you sounded in your response. I consider what you just said immature, and that is my opinion, so snap if you want to, but that will not phase me. It will just prove my point. And please, don't take this the wrong way. I just have no tolerance for immaturity like that.
